. thank you for joining me today. "cnn newsroom" continues with ashleigh banfield. >>> hello, everyone. i am ashleigh banfield. it is 11:00 on the east coast and 8:00 on the west coast and it is 6 p.m. in jerusalem where air raid sirens have been blaring within the past hour. jerusalem, not tel aviv. authorities are reporting that hamas rockets hit outside of that city. this is huge. it is the first time since 1970 that rockets have been fired at jerusalem. this new escalation, that's according to the newspaper in israel, but this new escalation comes after a failed cease-fire between the israelis and the palestinians earlier today. israel had said that it held off the bombing for two hours because egypt's prime minister was inside gaza meeting with hamas leaders and the palestinians for their part are denying that. they're disputing it. this week's fighting we know this has left more than 200 people injured. three israeli soldiers are dead, there are reports of civilian israelis dead as well and 24 palestinians killed in gaza and israel is amassing tanks near the border with gaza and cal

, and executioner. >> this is open on cnn on the secret drone war. >> there has to be a target that is authorized by our laws. it has to be a threat that is serious and not speculative. it has to be a situation in which we cannot capture the individual before they move forward on some sort of operational plot against the yen and the states. this is an example of where i think there has been some is reporting. we want to capture if we can because that -- then the king gather intelligence. a lot of the terrorist networks, the most dangerous was the target the u.s., operate from various regions and it is difficult to capture them. and we have got to make sure in whatever operations we conduct, we are very careful about avoiding civilian casualties. >> there is president obama speaking. i was just thinking about the yemeni cleric awlaki, his 16- year-old son who was killed. he was killed two weeks after his father was killed, also in a drone strike. >> people will hate us more for doing this and invading the sovereignty of pakistan, yemen, some in the country's. the united states is acting with impun
